Where is the best vaccuum line to tap into with a t-fitting for a boost gauge? I've heard on the factory BOV. My vaccuum line coming from the right of the bov on my 04 sti doesnt have much slack, so I tapped the vaccuum line going to the intake elbow, would this make a difference... it shouldn't right, since vaccuum/boost shoul be consistent anywhere in the system as long as it's not leaking right?
Well anyways, I installed my mechanical boost gauge, my buddy dropped it when we were drilling the column cover to mount it but it appearing fine. It wont register vaccuum/boost at all, and the needle sits at about .4psi. My best guess is that its busted because even if where i tapped into vaccuum was wrong it should still pull vaccuum when idling etc. right.
Anyone have any insight?
This post probably sounds dumb, but I'm hung over and pissed that I'm going to have to buy new gauge and after installing my pod on the column decided I dont like it and have to find a new way to mount it. I'll prolly go with an A-pillar pod when I order a new gauge.
